hear the news
Telangana Rashtra Samithi President and Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao is going to enter national politics very soon. In this regard, he has also made a big announcement on Sunday. Telangana CM has said that he will soon launch a national party. Significantly, earlier on Saturday also, party leaders had called upon him to represent Telangana by entering national politics. Significantly, after KCR’s announcement and indications from party leaders, there is speculation that KCR may announce the name of a new national party on the occasion of the upcoming Dussehra festival. However, the party has not made any official announcement regarding this yet. Earlier KCR was planning to form a third front.
Party leaders also demand
Earlier on Friday, the presidents of TRS district units appealed to KCR, saying that the anti-people rule of BJP at the Center needs to end and this will happen only when he enters national politics. TRS MLA and Mancherial district unit president Balka Suman said that ‘We, the presidents of various districts appeal to KCR that he should enter national politics and form a national party.’ At the same time, several other TRS leaders including some state ministers had also urged KCR to enter national politics. The statements of these leaders indicate that KCR may soon start a national party. At the same time, in his many public meetings held in Telangana in recent times, KCR himself has spoken of playing a role in national politics.
There was a churning in the name of the new party in June
In June this year, KCR had discussed the idea of forming a national party with TRS leaders. However, no final decision was taken on the idea of a new party then. TRS sources at that time also said that some names like ‘Bharat Rashtriya Samiti’ (BRS), ‘Ujjwal Bharat Party’ and ‘Naya Bharat Party’ were being discussed for a new party.
Had a discussion with Nitish
Significantly, KCR had recently met his Bihar counterpart Nitish Kumar in Patna. During that time KCR had called for a BJP-free India. During this, he had also made many allegations against the BJP government at the Center. Earlier, Chandrashekhar Rao met several non-BJP, non-Congress opposition leaders including Nitish Kumar, Sharad Pawar, Uddhav Thackeray and Hemant Soren and discussed the alleged anti-people policies of the BJP and bringing about a “qualitative change in the country”.
